Mary Arlene Hale wrote more than 100 books under pseudonyms Arlene Hale, Gail Everett, Louise Christopher, and Lynn Williams. She lived in New London, Iowa, the youngest of four surviving children. Her father died when she was about seven years old when he slipped on ice while carrying a shotgun. Shortly after graduating from high school in 1941, she worked for the Iowa-Illinois Telephone Co., and on a factory assembly line during World War II. Initially she began writing poetry, and had some success with this, then wrote her first book in 1948 and became a full-time novelist in 1954, at the age of 30. She never married and lived with her mother until her death, of cancer, at age 57.
